SHIPPENSBURG, PA (August 20, 2012) - The H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University is offering BALLROOM DANCE LESSONS, beginning Monday, September 17, 2012.  Classes take place consecutive Monday evenings (excluding October 15) through October 29, 2012, on-stage in the inspirational setting of the Grove Theatre, inside the Luhrs Center.

Two different classes are offered, based on experience level; Beginner (6:00 - 7:00 pm), and Advanced (7:00 - 8:00 pm).  Classes are taught by seasoned dance instructor, Frank Hancock.

Classic dance lessons are taught based on skill and experience level.  Beginner classes include Swing, Foxtrot, Cha Cha and Tango.  Advanced classes include the Waltz, Mambo, Two-Step, Rumba and Advanced Swing. 

It's a unique opportunity to learn ballroom dance moves on the same stage where Broadway dancers from Grease, Annie and Fiddler on the Roof have performed.  This is a great way to learn the basics as a beginner or brush up on your skills as a refresher.  Both singles and couples are welcome to register.

The cost is $35 per person for the entire six session course.  For additional information or to register for classes, contact the Luhrs Center box office at (717) 477-SHOW (7469).
